Our commitment to ESG


The healthcare sector is responsible for about 4,4% of greenhouse gas emissions and 5 million tons of waste worldwide each year. Although healthcare is meant to improve health, the current significant impact on the environment creates a paradox.

Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

Sustainability Report

As a leading distributor of medical solutions in Europe, Duomed plays an important role between production and consumption. Our unique position gives us the opportunity o make the healthcare market more sustainable. We are committed to taking responsible business action to break this healthcare paradox and create the healthier and more sustainable world we all want.

Since March 2023, Duomed Group is a proud member of the United Nations Global Compact, aligning our operations and strategy with their 10 universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption. Within our 3 ESG pillars below, we contribute to 7 topics of their Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

In June 2024 we published our first Sustainability Report in which we elaborate on our achievements. Read our full Sustainability Report.

For the assessment and management of our sustainability practices, we plan to work with the EcoVadis platform. 
EcoVadis will help us manage ESG risk and compliance, meet our corporate sustainability goals, and drive impact at scale by guiding the sustainability performance improvement of our company.

We are proud to have attained EcoVadis certification for Duomed France Endoscopie (Gold), Duomed France Solutions (Bronze) and Duomed Scandinavia (Gold) and aim for certification for Duomed Group by 2024.

Our sustainable commitment is built on three pillars:

ESG Pillars

Duomed Swiss

In Switzerland there is a focus on minimizing packaging, certified and recyclable materials, eliminating and phasing out unwanted substances in products as well as on sustainable solutions in relation to transportation and manufacturing of products. At Duomed Swiss, we strongly believe in working together with our customers and suppliers to make a difference to benefit us all. We work hard to track and reduce our own carbon footprint and waste. We undertake actions and have goals identified in terms of our infrastructure, fleet, warehouse and logistics, waste management and product range.

We also want to give something back to our community. That's why we donate to Fondation Theodora, a non-profit organization. With creativity, humor and improvisation, they do everything in their power to give sick children and people with disabilities a carefree moment. We are happy to be able to continue supporting this wonderful project in the future.

We also support the Bethany Hospital in Tamatave with materials and instruments. The majority of the population in Madagascar cannot afford a doctor. Thanks to Swiss participation of Verein Fokus Madagaskar and doctors from Thun, an operating room for surgical examinations has been set up and, since 2023, a new room for gastroenterology.

Our partners

Aside to our own efforts, we also work closely together with our suppliers to find new and innovative solutions to reduce and find more sustainable packaging and product materials. We encourage our partners to put sustainability high on the agenda, we promote ISO 14001 and FSC certification* (some are already certified) and ECO-label and encourage them to set goals for how they will reduce their carbon footprint and contribute to a circular economy model.
